Heat Recovery Ventilators for Your Home
How Residential Heat Recovery Ventilation Units (HRVs) Can Refresh Your Living Space
How an HRV Unit Works
When you install an HRV inside your living space, it goes through an intricate process to keep the air in your home fresh and cool.
The main purpose of this unit is to remove the stale air from your living space and draw in the fresh air from outside your home at the same time.
The result is constantly renewed air that helps you feel as comfortable as possible in your home.
To ensure that the air in your home is continuously refreshed, an HRV system undergoes a heat transfer.
A heat transfer occurs when the stale air inside your home makes contact with the fresh air outdoors. The old air is then discarded outside your home while the clean, fresh air fills your space and invigorates you.
One of the most notable features of a heat recovery ventilation system is the fact that it accomplishes its goal without wasting energy.
The process of replacing the stuffy air in your home with new, clean air is a completely natural process that uses up no energy. At the same time, the stale air and fresh air never mix together, which helps to ensure that you’re only breathing clean air in your living space.
